What do you think?
It's been years since I played them, but I remember Bloodlines being very difficult for me. I remember Super Castlevania IV having a much more reasonable difficulty level that made it the superior of the two games.
Part 4 is a bonafide SNES classic. You can't say that about Bloodlines on Genesis, although it is a great game in its own right. I read somewhere that Castlevania IV was made by some members of Treasure, before they branched off on their own. The quality shows.
Isn't Rondo of Blood technically an 8-bit game? Most of us in America never got a chance to play that game anyways, until the PSP Castlevania. We only got the sub-par SNES port.
EASILY bloodlines. It has a better feel, and better music. I thought the SNES castlevainias stage design was boring and complicated. While CV4 was a good game in its own the right, the Bloodlines just blew me away. It seems when it comes to games made by konami, the genesis always gets the better game!
Haven't played Zombies Ate My Neighbors, eh?
Super Castlevania IV for the win. Bloodlines isn't bad though. You can download Rondo of Blood on the Virtual Console if you don't have a PC Engine/TG-16.
